Low cost Scopus indexed journals

From my experience with research journals, almost all the Scopus Journals from well-known publishers are unpaid unless they are open-access. For instance, IEEE has many journals in the Scopus list and all of them are free unless you publish them open access or have content beyond the prescribed length.

In this post, we have listed Scopus indexed journals that publish at a low cost or even without publication fees. These journals expect researchers to write quality research papers.
